This project overview describes a 2016 Collaborative Research project that designed and applied predictive models to better understand the buffering services provided by Piermont Marsh on New York's Hudson River.
This resource contains the presenter slides, Q&A responses, recording, and presenter bios from the March 2021 webinar Understanding the Role Coastal Marshes Play in Protecting Communities from Storm Surge and Flooding.
This dataset comprises the data collected and produced as part of the 2016 research project Investigating the Interconnectedness of Climate Change, Nuisance Mosquitoes, and Resilience of Coastal Salt Marsh Systems.
This resource contains the presenter slides, Q&A responses, recording, and presenter bios from the February 2021 webinar Understanding the Interconnectedness of Climate Change, Salt Marsh Resilience, and Nuisance Mosquitoes.
This collection of graphics was developed to support the project's outreach and communications efforts and is being made available for use by others.
These teaching modules for middle and high school educators is focused on the biology, ecology, and impacts of climate change on mosquitoes and their habitats.
This data resource includes marsh vegetation, water level data and modeling outputs from a project that examined how Piermont Marsh in New York buffers the impacts of storms.
This project overview describes a 2018 Catalyst project led by Grand Bay Reserve that developed standardized tools to quality-check, analyze, and visualize Surface Elevation Table data.
This article, published in Estuaries and Coasts in 2021, estimates sediment impounded behind dams, compares this with new estimates of watershed sediment yield, and assesses the potential fate for dam sediment released into the estuary.
This open-access article examines how a proposed surge barrier for New York harbor might perform over time as sea level rises and storms become more frequenty.
This resource contains the presenter slides, Q&A responses, recording, and presenter bios from the November 2020 webinar Measuring Climate Adaptation Success and Progress: Introduction to the Resilience Metrics Toolkit
This project overview describes a 2018 Catalyst project that facilitated the development of a collaborative research agenda to study the ecological and physical impacts of storm surge barriers on the Hudson River Estuary.
This document summarizes key lessons that emerged during the July 2020 panel webinar Innovative Approaches to Integrating Research and K-12 Education to Advance Estuary Stewardship. In addition to providing a record of the Q&A, this document also contains short descriptions of some education efforts across the reserve system and ideas for expanding the reach of education in new and existing projects.
This resource contains the webinar recording as well as the presenter slides and Q&A responses from the September 2020 webinar Dams and Sediment in the Hudson.
This project overview describes the Dams and Sediment in the Hudson collaborative research project that assessed how sediment released by dam removals would affect the Hudson River estuary and provide practical tools to regulators and practitioners.
These datasets and statistical analysis codes model surge barrier effects on the Hudson River estuary, developed as part of the 2018 catalyst project Assessing the Physical Effects of Storm Surge Barriers on the Harbor and Hudson River Estuary.
This project overview describes a 2018 Catalyst project that created the web-based toolkit Resilience Metrics to share lessons learned on successful climate adaptation planning within the National Estuarine Research Reserve System.
This webinar, conducted June 30, 2020, presents research findings from the 2018-2020 catalyst project Assessing the Physical Effects of Storm Surge Barriers on the Harbor and Hudson River Estuary.
This article, submitted for publication in Geophysical Research Letters in 2020, uses turbidity observations to characterize estuary response following extreme discharge such as from storm-related flooding, which can be a proxy for sediment release from dam removals.
This article, submitted for publication to Earth Surface Processes and Landforms in 2020, describes findings from the Dams and Sediment in the Hudson (DaSH) project related to tidal wetland growth in the Hudson River estuary as a result of human activities. It presents sediment accumulation rates in marshes along the Hudson and reveals the rapid growth of marshes associated with anthropogenic structures.
